Organization description: TC Food Justice is a small and growing nonprofit, volunteer-run organization founded in 2016. TCFJ works to reduce food waste and hunger by partnering with grocers, bakeries, farmers markets with excess fresh food and delivers it to hunger relief organizations or directly to food insecure populations. TCFJ is run by a volunteer staff of seven individuals plus a large team of food rescue volunteers. TCFJ is growing and scaling to reach more food insecure populations across the Twin Cities and is in search of a director that will continue building momentum and expanding programming through innovative approaches.

Position description: This unpaid position is intended for a highly self-motivated individual who is committed to continuing to scale and lead a growing grassroots nonprofit organization. The individual hired for this position will begin in the role of Co-Director working shoulder-to-shoulder with the current Executive Director.
